I have had several people ask me what I think about Matt Kelty's stance on Sexually Oriented Businesses (SOB's).
I am surprised that anyone who reads this blog would ask me what I think about Matt Kelty's thoughts on SOB's.
I do not agree with them in the slightest.
I tend to think that consenting adults should do what they wish as long as it does not harm someone else.
I do not think that SOB's hurt anyone. While it is possible that SOB's are harmful, I really am not sure whether they do or not. Consenting adults should have the right to do what they wish as long as they are not harming another person!
I have never had someone stick a gun in my face and force me into an SOB against my will. The people who patronize SOB's are adults and they should have the right to make their own decisions.
I truly am tired of the Government constantly trying to legislate everything. You cannot legislate morality, period...
I choose not to patronize SOB's in general. In my navy days the same cannot be said. After spending a couple of months underwater with a hundred other young men I did all kinds of things when I pulled into foreign ports that I would not do today.
If a friend has a Bachelors party and part of the Bachelors Party is in a "Strip Club" then I go to a "strip club." I do not generally go to SOB's; however, I have done it before and I may do it again. That is between me and my wife and is no one else's business.
It is fairly easy to statistically conclude that being overweight is bad for your health. Will we allow the government to make it illegal to be overweight?
It is unhealthy not to exercise three times a week. Should the government pass a law requiring us to exercise?
This is certainly one issue where Matt Kelty and I disagree.
